Regardless of the outcome, I could almost bet that the likelihood of Blizzard or Blizzard Activision of producing anything groundbreaking and short of remakes is close to zero. At best we'll get an "immersive Overwatch II VR experience" or some variation of it.
I had already partly given up on the company, now I won't buy anymore. Litigation or not, this mess is not worth the trouble. Why would I even play Diablo 2 Remastered when I have Path of Exile, etc
According to wiki, allegations against Cosby were first raised in 2014.
But having a "Cosby-themed room" in "2000something" is now an evidence of something horrible?
It's one of the more muddy points of the suit (and again, the timeline of the Cosby Suite is both maybe not true on my side and/or I can gather it probably continued since the original Cosby Suite thing). So maybe this one instance is just an unlucky, bad look. But it's one of those things where there are now like a plethora of points that were actual abuse if the allegations are true, so if one or two things were misinterpreted in retrospect or whatever, I implore you to understand it's just a few points out of a massive picture. It's very easy for the mind to hook onto one disproven claim and think it outmatches a massive number of proofs supporting a contrary point, it's something callous people do a lot, and it something I often fall victim to myself.
Like, in the case of the Cosby Suite, the leaked pictures and such. https://kotaku.com/inside-blizzard-developers-infamous-bill-cosby-suite-1847378762
This only has photographic evidence from 2013, so maybe I'm misremembering the timeline. It's hard to keep up since the information is exploding, so to say.
Anyways, point. Even if we remove all alleged Cosby abuse from the equation, the article is primarily about the culture surrounding the Cosby Suite, where one named individual (explicitly named in the suit), Afrasiabi was known to grope women a lot
(among other things), and was not corrected over it for years
(beside some verbal hand-slapping). And he was not unique here. So if they named it the Sinatra Suite instead, it would still be kind of irrelevant to the behavior within
the Suite, which was allegedly a hub of sexual harassment frat life.
To put it shortly in this concrete allegation, the name doesn't even really matter at this point, since the alleged behavior, regardless of name, was so abusive.
They explained the Cosby Suite as being named after different ugly carpets and the sweaters on the show or something, but disproving that this had any connection to the abuse does basically nothing in the bigger picture. They have to disprove a lot
, including factual data on pay gaps that are not lining up with employment history.
